Which distribution use exim by default ?
Debian ?
Other ?

Does the license matter ?
exim : GPL
postfix : IBM Public License

        IBM Public License, Version 1.0
                This is a free software license but it is incompatible
                with the GPL.
                The IBM Public License is incompatible with the GPL
                because it has various specific requirements that are
                not in the GPL.
                For example, it requires certain patent licenses be
                given that the GPL does not require. (We don't think
                those patent license requirements are inherently a bad
                idea, but nonetheless they are incompatible with the GNU

Just curious.
